Walk & Waterhole - Ormiston Pound & Gorge

Seize the day, spend an extended amount of time at one of the most exquisite destinations in the West MacDonnell Ranges.

Experience NT time, slow down, soak up what is the essence of the MacDonnell ranges, found here at Ormiston Gorge. Beside the Larapinta Trail.

A day trip from Alice Springs. Medium level walk 3-4 hours across semi-arid country. Dirt paths, sandy creek bed, up/down hill and scrambling over rocks.

Soaring orange cliffs hang high above a once raging watercourse that left behind a lazy waterhole. There are boulders to lie upon like a lazy lizard in the hot sun after a swim (warmer months).

Walk, swim, explore nature, relax, contemplate, dream!
